Innovations think tank Two Bit Circus have developed a concept for a festival to encourage kids to learn more about science, technology, engineering and maths - by using robots, fires and lasers. Currently raising funds on Kickstarter, the STEAM Festival will launch in Los Angeles and San Francisco next spring, with a fairground-style carnival filled with games, immersive entertainment and ideas.
Two Bit Circus say, "Our culture isn't doing enough to get kids interested in STEAM... When you say 'engineering' to most kids they zone out. But when you say 'lasers, robots, and fire,' you have their undivided attention." Find out more about the festival here.
